WHO WE ARE
We know that running a small business or community organisation can be full of constraints. Time, money, good will, commitment... all of these things are at a premium and - when you're in the thick of things - you don't always have a moment to lift your head up and think "Okay. What's next?"
We can help you.
Take a look through our case studies, at the variety of organisations we have helped so far, to get a flavour of what change is possible and how we might be useful. Get a Lydon on it.
LYDON CREATIVE: WHAT WE CAN DO TO HELP
A variety of approaches
Offering a sounding board or a "second brain"
Organisations reach a certain point and become stuck. We can advise on the route ahead: change for growth; increased efficiency; sympathetic downsizing... whatever you feel would suit you and your organisation best
Keeping the process of change on track
If your organisation needs a more consistent and objective voice, we can provide steering and become more involved at whatever level is needed to not only effect change but make sure that change is in alignment with an overall strategy
Development and execution of special projects
If your organisation needs a boost in the public's eye, we can provide one-off, and ongoing, solutions to raise your profile. Those may be public-facing, however you might also benefit from an internal system which helps you to control a certain aspect of the running of your business. The choice is yours and we can work with you to find the best options
A little bit of everything!
If your business concept or community organisation is barely more than an idea at the moment, we're always very interested in helping you to develop that concept into something with legs. Or wings. Whichever metaphor you prefer.
Start-up Assistance comes in many flavours and tends to be a mixture of many aspects of the various services we can offer. Our common-sense approach means that you can side-step a lot of the traditional pitfalls that new businesses fall into, giving you a leg-up on your competitors from the outset
Where a little bit of Lydon creativity has helped before...
Every organisation is different. Take a look at some examples below of the types of business and community organisation that have benefitted from our creative approach to change:
MRPII SYSTEM FOR PHARMA
"A dose of control"
Whilst employed at Surepharm, a contract pharmaceutical manufacturer in South Derbyshire, our James was heavily involved in the development and ongoing management of a variety of control systems but, especially, the bespoke Manufacturing Resource Planning system. This MRPII system (and its offshoots) would go on to govern the activities of every department within the company but without the need for excessive maintenance or system administration.
Since leaving the company, James has carried on in a consulting role in support of the MRPII system, as the company moves to transfer operations to a more corporate SAP system from a third-party vendor.
